Your 8th grade student should be working on the action portion of his/her Community Project. Have your scholar share information about the project with you.
All 8th grade students at SVA are required to participate in completing the IB Community Project. Students may work individually or in groups up to 3. While students will be monitored on their progress through their advisory class, it is expected that students will put forth approximately 15 hours of work outside of school in order to complete the project. Topic exploration begins in their 7th grade year with research and action to be completed during the 8th grade. Projects are expected to be completed (research, action, presentation) by May of their 8th grade year.
